Rack mount combiner or remote mount with conduit entry?

I’m putting in a 6 panel off-grid system on our roof and was I initially thinking of mounting the Midnight MNPV6 combiner we have remotely at ground level and running the PV wires ~ 50ft thru conduit to the combiner. Though now I’m thinking of mounting the combiner at the rack and just running the combined wires thru the conduit down to the charge controller because I’d be able to go with smaller conduit, have to pull less wires, and go for more oversized gage wires to both have a bit better expandability in the future and less resistance losses.
However I’m struggling in finding mounting brackets or any other mounting info for how to mount the combiner to or near the rack. Is there an easy way to mount the midnight combiner to the rack or the roof, or just a special bracket to buy?
On the other hand if I still did remote mount the combiner I’m not exactly sure the best way to have the wires enter the conduit (simple rack mount junction box with glands or something like a weatherhead?)
